    Should be a State Law on this, with heavy fines.

    I have a friend who just had their entire heat pump replaced, I told them to insist they do a Nitrogen Bleed the full time the outdoor and indoor units were torched up. The company said they would do that, but on installation they didnít. The installer guy said it wasnít needed, there was already inert gas in the line. BTW I looked his name up, no license on file in MD, DC or VA. Company has a MD license. Thatís Two strikes against them. Would love to out them, but donít feel like getting sued.

    Let the friend do it.
    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    It would have been advisable to look him up BEFORE the installation.

    Why we say the installing contractor is the most important thing

    I dont understand why they would skip that. It didnt save them any time in the grand scheme of things. Let the owner deal with the "contractor"
